Join one of these workshops for fun and learning
There are many different workshops you can do and much you can learn either as a hobby or a business.

These five are presented by the Perth Makers Markets.

1. Embroidery Hoop Art Workshop
The embroidery hoop is a frame that consists of a pair of concentric circular wooden rings. The larger ring has a tightening device and this is usually a metal screw. The fabric is put in between these rings and you work on it.

Danielle Matthews from "Ruby Sew Oh" will teach you about the tools and techniques needed in creating embroidery hoop art. You will learn the basics of hand embroidery, practice various stitches, and make your own piece to take home.

This will be on 28th July from 1.00 pm until 3.30 pm and the cost will be $89 plus GST.

You will receive refreshments, and all materials, as well as a take-home kit - all included in the price. It will be held at the Heathcote Cultural Precinct, 58 Duncraig Road in Applecross.

2. Marketing 101: Affirming Your Foundation
In this first of two workshops, you'll be taught how to get back to marketing basics.

It will focus on resetting or affirming your foundations and this will be a great opportunity to boost your self-confidence when it comes to marketing and promoting your creations.

You will be taught how to:
Understand the reasons you started your business and how to use the information to engage with your ideal customers.
Identify and connect with your ideal customer in a way that will create a good and lasting experience that keeps them coming back to you for more.
Think like the business owner you are and less like the "on the side, when I have time" maker.
Source the stories in your business so you can use these as a means to create "engagement and a connected community of people who love you as much as they love what you make".
Understand the effect that planning has on business growth as your audience gets larger, and therefore so do your sales.
Have better focus and clarity and therefore feel more confident to market your products online and in person.

This will be held on 24th July from 6.00 pm until 9.00 pm and it includes tea and coffee. It will be held at the Heathcote Cultural Precinct, 58 Duncraig Road, Applecross.

Cost: $150.00 plus GST, and you can book here.
